Hello and welcome to a brilliant week full of fantastic #R3COMM3ND3D posts! I am delighted to welcome another awesome book blogger to share their three #R3COMM3ND3D picks with us today – Namrata of Red Pillows. If you haven’t discovered Red Pillows yet then head on over and hit subscribe!
So, what is #R3COMM3ND3D2019? It’s about sharing the book love. It’s a chance for authors and book bloggers to shout about three (yes, *only* three) books they love. They can be written by any author, in any genre and published in any way (traditionally, indie press or self-published). But there is a catch. All three books must have been published in 2019. To make things interesting I have added a couple of teeny, tiny rules this year which are; 1) the book must have first been published in 2019 and 2) special editions and reissues do not count. I like to keep you lovely people on your toes 😉.
Here are the books Namrata recommends…
The Legacy of the Heirs by A.V.V. Reddi
The Legacy of the Heirs is built up on an intricate web of love, lies and deceit to ensure that the reader remains hooked. The author has managed to handle a large number of characters with ease. As a reader, we can understand each person’s significance and their role in this elaborate plot. The story is well written and seamlessly flows from one situation to the next.

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
Samantha Shannon weaves a world of fantasy, magic and dragons, that makes for a very compelling read. The story follows a great number of characters across various parts of the globe, mainly referred to based on the directions of North, South, East and West. Each direction has it’s own set of countries, rulers and stories. The author weaves them all together slowly, unravelling parts of the mystery and introducing us to many people.
The characters are strong and well crafted making it easy for the reader to connect with them and understand them. Each of the characters are tested when their faith comes into question, as well as when they are forced to take decisions that would change the course of their lives forever. This has been very beautifully depicted and the companionship between some of the characters is heart-warming.

Moms of the Missing by Steffen Hou
As clearly stated in the synopsis, this book deals with facts and investigates ten abduction cases. Through each case we are introduced to the kinds of abductions that exist and how they can happen. This is presented to us through interviews with family members who have had to deal with the loss of a child.
Though this was a difficult book to read, my heart goes out to all the victims and their families. I strongly recommend this book to everyone as it brings about an awareness on a very important topic that could help any one of us in the world today.
We are all in this together and we should learn to support one another. Also, please be aware and sensitive towards other people!
